SETIS - SET Plan information system

About

Established in 2016, the working group on Offshore wind energy helps to coordinate SET Plan countries’ R&I agendas for offshore wind and promotes increased collaboration between national research activities. 

It is supported by the European Technology Innovation Platform (ETIP) Wind, European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) JP Wind and SETWind project

Targets and objectives

In November 2020, the working group agreed upon and published new SET Plan targets for offshore wind in Europe: 

  • achieve 8.7 GW annual installed capacity by 2030;  
  • achieve 21.4 GW annual installed grid capacity by 2030;  
  • reach an average levelised cost of energy (LCOE) of between 35 and 45 €/MWh by 2030 for bottom-fixed offshore wind; and  
  • reach an average LCOE of between 62 and 106 €/MWh by 2030 for floating offshore wind.  

Composition

The group is chaired by the Netherlands, and includes nine other European countries and one observer (Greece).
